Kiss the Sky
March 7, 8 pm
The premiere Jimi Hendrix tribute band in the world re-creates the iconic moments of one of the most exciting guitarists of all-time. From the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys’ eras through Monterey to Woodstock and more in meticulous detailed fashion, the Kiss the Sky look and sound is the most historically accurate production of Hendrix live. Jimy Bleu, a virtuoso left-handed guitarist just like Hendrix himself, recreates all the famous moves – playing guitar behind his back, head, between his legs and with his teeth. Kiss the Sky plays all of Jimi’s best hits including Fire, Hey Joe, All Along the Watchtower, Foxy Lady and more.

82nd Artist Members Exhibition
March 7 – April 18
For 82 years Guild Hall has reserved space in its exhibition schedule for the Annual Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition. The first installment took place in 1938, shortly after Guild Hall’s inception in 1931 and is the oldest non-juried show on Long Island and one of the few non-juried exhibitions still running. Due to the wonderful popularity of this exhibition, around 400 artists participate each year. Susan Thompson, Associate Curator at the Guggenheim Museum, will be this year’s awards juror. Thompson will review the entire exhibition and award up to 17 artists in many categories. The Top Honors award winner will be given a solo exhibition in the Museum’s Spiga Gallery.
